In our final installment of the Hayek Program’s 2019 Future of Work Conference, we hear from Elizabeth Rhodes, research director for the Basic Income Project at Y Combinator Research.  In her talk, she shares her research experiences in projects relating to a guaranteed basic income, including research on how she believes recent economic growth has been unevenly distributed and how intergenerational mobility has decreased. She also focuses on how the nature of modern jobs has changed and what can be done to address these changes while also addressing deficiencies in the current social safety net.
